Re: Handling Anchor/Rode with no Locker

I keep mine in a cockpit locker as well. The anchor lives back there too. I don't like hanging anchors on my pulpit because they tend to be good at snagging and ripping spinnakers! I don't anchor very often, but If I need it I can grab the anchor and chain and carry it forward, and the rode will feed out of the locker as I need it. When rafting I offer to set the stern hook!
